    You have to be exposed to the virus to develop immunity. This one is “novel,” so most folks aren’t going to be resistant to it unless it’s by random genetic chance, or previous exposure to other similar coronaviruses. Some weaker coronaviruses can present as a “common cold,” so it’s not totally novel.

    Antibiotic resistance would only be an issue for secondary infections, which can be a problem with the kind of pneumonia this can cause. If you get an antibiotic resistant secondary, you’re prolly fucked.

    Best not to think of it as a “flu,” better to think of it as viral pneumonia.
    You are using big words. Also long sentences. Meester doesn't do big words. Or long sentences.

    Here, try this:

    antibiotics not work on virus. work on bacteria. people can resistant. but needs vaccine. coronavirus new. no vaccine. vaccine not cure.
    I was trying to not be condescending, given the fact that all of us have an equal need to understand how this stuff works, but sure.

    Best thing to do is stock up on a few weeks of non perishables and frozen stuff so you don't go hungry if there's interruption in the supply chain. Some canned foods, stuff in the freezer, and some staple dryfood rice/bean bags or something similar. It's not time to run to the bunker and stock up on ammo but you may want to invest in S&W or something because you know people will start panic buying things.

    This - and also look at your regular grocery list and figure out the things you absolutely need that aren't food stuffs. Low on shampoo? Dish washing liquid or tablets? Paper towel? If there is significant disruption it's likely because the illness is present in your region so you'll want to reduce your exposure (such as by going out shopping) anyway and having enough stuff on hand to defer leaving the house will help, regardless of any quarantine conditions you may or may not also face...

    Was discussing this with my father and we have plenty of stuff in the freezer. Though it would be a good idea to get more pasta, dried fruit, and dairy. Also consider getting some water jugs and propane. I don't foresee any disruption to water, natural gas, or electricity here. But if you rely on fuel oil deliveries, might want to top off now and get some propane for a camp stove.

    A collapsible security baton is sufficient, and won't escalate things as much. Mace is even cheaper, more concealable, and more effective.

    Yup, did this yesterday. Now have more bog roll in the house than I think I've ever had before.

    Spreading in the US and the CDC wouldn’t even test a suspected case because C O M P E T E N C E.

    This is what happens when you have low funding: you triage where it's likely to be useful. The fact that their screening process had a false negative doesn't mean that they're incompetent, it almost certainty means that they're resource constrained.

    The Harvard epidemiology professor Marc Lipsitch is exacting in his diction, even for an epidemiologist. Twice in our conversation he started to say something, then paused and said, “Actually, let me start again.” So it’s striking when one of the points he wanted to get exactly right was this: “I think the likely outcome is that it will ultimately not be containable.”


    Estimates that 40-70% of the world population will contract it within a year.

    Only question is what the actual mortality rate is. 2%? 0.2%? 0.02%?

    I was making a dig at Pence. I’m sure the CDC staff are doing everything they can with the available resources.

    Assuming a 1% mortality rate and that half the world's population will ultimately catch it that's 39 million deaths from beervirus. Still bad, although not quite black death levels. If we're really doom and gloom at 2% and 70% catch it that shoots up to 110 million.

    is this some new grift/conspiracy theory going about ?

    because nobody claims the problem is the virus itself, it's the lack of resistance to it and the attendant symptoms it brings along with its capacity to spread with the efficiency associated with flu that is the danger. the existing mortality rates are all contingent on it not overwhelming healthcare systems, it's the second-order consequences that are dangerous, not the virus itself.

    Pneumonia left untreated has, historically, a 25-45% fatality rate skewing towards newborns and the elderly, even the most basic antibiotics such as Penicillin brings that down massively, of course then there is the issues surrounding drug resistance. but the basic stuff can, reasonably trivially, be fermented on-mass if need be, but that in turn takes time and is by no means a trivial task to assemble when hospitals are overflowing.

    i am not even sure he's actually grasping my point in the first place, there are "two killers" when it comes to pneumonia, one being loss of oxygen absorption due to tissue death and fluid build-up the other being bacterial infection in said dead tissue compounding the viral pneumonia with a bacterial one massively accelerating and worsening the symptoms. viral pneumonia is, usually, a comparatively mild condition to the extend that a healthy adult can and will walk it off without problems usually mistaking it for severe flu, by most accounts that's what CORVID-19 gives most healthy people people. the bacterial one, once it gets established and "runs away", that has a rather high likelihood to kill you untreated.

    it's a fucking horrid feeling by the way, bacterial pneumonia. i had a rather severe case of it years back because i was too stubborn to see a doctor with my "cold" until i got to the point where just walking out the door made me short on breath and it felt like my lungs like they where covered in razors.
